Year 10 Spanish Writing 

¡Hola a todos! We all know by now that online learning can sometimes be a challenge so I wanted to take this opportunity to showcase some class work that has been done by our students, even in these difficult times. 

Our Year 10 students recently wrote short essays in the style of an IGCSE question from memory. We have selected three great examples of work, where students show emerging accuracy and include some interesting idiomatic expressions. This was just a practice essay and it shows how hard the students have been working behind the scenes, giving us an insight into what’s to come. We hope you enjoy the examples below.
